  Submarine SSN-784

USS North Dakota (SSN-784) is a Virginia-class submarine.   This ship is the first of the Block III subs which will feature a revised bow, including some technology from Ohio-class submarine cruise missile submarines.  She costs $2.7 billion to build.

USS North Dakota's payload tubes replace the more costly individual Vertical Launch System payload tubes of the past.  Unlike the first 10 Virginia Class submarines that housed 12 Tomahawks in individual VLS tubes, North Dakota will use two of the new tubes to house and launch the same number of missiles. The new tubes will provide the North Dakota with greater payload flexibility because it will be able to house a range of weapon payloads that are too big for existing VLS tubes.

"This shows how much cutting-edge technology is being used in the construction of this sub," said Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D.

Over the past few years, Dorgan led an effort for the Navy to name a new North Dakota.  He invited Sen. Kent Conrad, Rep. Earl Pomeroy and a number of other distinguished North Dakotans to form the North Dakota Committee, and convinced former Secretary of State Warren Christopher, who was born in North Dakota at Scranton, to be honorary chairman.  Last July, that effort paid off.

Until then, North Dakota was one of only five states that had not had more than one ship named after it, despite North Dakota's significant contributions to branches of the U.S. military. The first and only at sea North Dakota (BB-29) was decommissioned in 1923.
